Description of problem:
python-docutils should be listed in BuildRequires.
If python-docutils are not installed the rebuild fails with:
checking for rst2man... no
configure: error: in `/tmp/tmp.fuWOwPayoC/rsyslog-7.4.10':
configure: error: rst2man not found in PATH
Karel, I don't think rst2man should be required during the build. Did you do a plain rebuild or were there some tweaks to the rpm?
I've checked the configure script and without certain options, which are not used in the spec file, the check for rst2man shouldn't be used.
I've also done several scratch-builds in the meantime and they passed, so I'm puzzled by this outcome. Could you please recheck?
Unfortunately, I don't remember. Anyway, I can't reproduce this issue so I think that the bug could be closed.
